I think the scarist place I ever surfed was near the opening to a small harbor, somewhere between Waikiki and Pearl...back in the late 60's. Near the end of the day small commercial fishing boats would come back into the harbor, and throw overboard bait and fish parts on their way back in. When you saw the fishing boats coming in, everyone surfing beat feet back to the safety of the beach...sharks would be following the boats.

I kinda miss some of those times too (in my mind), but I would never really want to go back to those days again...being a surf bum had its draw back.

poopdeckpappy The sea lion had been attacked, missing most of the upper portion from the foreflipper up, unknown is if the pup was injuried at all.

Agreed, as kid, back in the day when Dan Merkel and Arron Chang were contributing photographers, I was trying to break in with Surfing Mag( gave up too soon ) and spent hours upon hours in the water or on the sand with my camera when I wasn't out myself.

Surfed/shot from Coos Bay to South of Ensenada, never gave it much thought until I heard about migations of GW's so I started reading, now I try and read whatever/whenever I can.

Once on the Northside of HB pier I had a 6' thresher go under me, I had no idea until the lifguards met me on the beach, 3 days later something hit and almost remover the tip of my middle finger at San Clemente Pier, again didn't even know it until I was on the beach trying to figure out where the blood was from

Interesting.

Once in a great while walking along the beaches in Encinitas we would come across a lone seal pup, but never saw any adults except just out past the surf line. While surfing we always felt a bit safer when we saw dolphins coming through (don't know if we were really safer), but when we first would see them at a distance we kept an eye on them, never knowing 'exactly' what they were. It's kinda funny that as kids we didn't seem to fear anything while sitting on our surfboards, but if something touched our dangling legs or feet, we sure pulled our feet up fast!

Thanks for the definition Fstbttms, I haven't heard that before.

As long as I lived in Encinitas and Cardiff (since high school), I never heard of a haul out in Solana Beach...and I've walked that beach many times...interesting.

Personally I think 10-2 should be #1, but it's not my stats
I must have checked out the same site you did, but I found as going through the stats they conflicted in the odds page...but an attack is an attack. When I said that it would probably be decades before that happened again, I meant to say before someone dies from an attack. I know that there have been non-fatal attacks in San Diego mainly to divers and surfers (although rare), but fatal attacks have been even rarer.

Before this man got killed there has only been news on two others being killed in San Diego that I can remember. One was a male diver off La Jolla around 1959, and the story was that his diving buddy saw him get swallowed by a white shark. Rescue divers went out to the area and tried to find anything to confirm what the buddy diver said, but nothing was found in the area. Something was found 'up current' from the sight which was suppose to belong to the dead diver (I think it was a swim fin and mask), but the story going around at that time was that the divers death was possible a stunt for insurance money...and no body or body part was ever found. I was a kid when that happened, and was just learning how to dive. In the diving circle in particular that was the talk of the town, and I remember the older divers talking about it often.

There was another fatal attack reported in the mid 90's I think, about a woman that died from a shark attack off Pt. Loma. The story going around on that one was that she was murdered, and thrown in the water to fake a drowning. She had a bite on one of her legs, but no one could say that's what killed her.

So really in all of the recorded history of San Diego, there has only been one confirmed death by a shark...that I know of.

Haul out?...what do you mean by that?

I noticed that profile says Kona Kai...is that where your boat is in San Diego? If so we're neighbors, as our boat is at Shelter Island Marina.
